I love Easter egg activities for April sensory bins and centers, because they are so easy but kids love them! These Easter egg activities don’t require much prep, but they are super hands on.
For all of these Easter egg centers, you will need 12 plastic eggs and a permanent marker to label them 1-12. I grabbed a bag at The Dollar Tree and still had some left over!
If you want to make this an Easter sensory bin station, just add crinkle paper! I also found that at The Dollar Tree.
Easter Egg Sight Words Center
For this sight words activity, you will put magnetic letters of plastic letter tiles to spell a word in each plastic Easter egg.
Students will open up an egg and unscramble the letters to make a sight word. They will write the unscrambled sight word on their recording sheet (grab it below).
You can differentiate this by putting a piece of paper with the word in the egg too, or by giving them a list of all the words included.
You will want to model and teach the expectation of putting everything back in and closing the plastic Easter egg tight before grabbing another one!
Easter Egg Counting Collections
Counting collections just seem to be the perfect plastic Easter egg activities! You won’t find an easier Easter math center!
Just fill each plastic Easter egg with mini erasers, beads, counters, etc. Students will open an egg, count the collection, and write the number on their recording sheet.
You can easily differentiate this Easter egg center by adding more or less counters in each egg!
You could also make this an addition center as a brain teaser for students who are ready. Just put two types of counters in there, and let them make a number sentence that matches.
Easter Egg CVC Words Activities
Of course, you can’t forget using Easter eggs to practice cvc words (or any other word building skill).
Just put the letters to build a cvc word in each egg and let them unscramble it to build a word! It may take some trial and error, which is great decoding practice!
If you want to make this easier, you can put a picture of the word in the egg, or give students a list of words.
Preschool and Pre-K teachers, you can stick just a letter in the egg and have students write it on their recording sheet.
Rabbit Themed Centers for Kindergarten
While we don’t do much Easter in our classroom beyond these Easter egg activities, we LOVE all things rabbit themed! If you’re looking for rabbit themed math and literacy centers that will engage your students, I’ve got you covered.
